Hello Friends!!!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!!! As for me I had a lovely day spending time crafting & watching a few holiday programs on tv. In the evening Hubs and I headed over to my Sis's house to visit and deliver presents for the kidlings.

Here are some goodies I picked up the other day while shopping at Michaels:

My last day at my job is on Friday so I am taking a little break before I go back to the job market. :) I'm looking forward to having some time to work on my crafts and start up my etsy shop again. Stay tune for details on my etsy shop. Thank you.

Here is a Christmas Chunky ATC I created for Swing Shift Designs. I used various Vintage Christmas images from the Winter Wonderland & Christmas Angels collage sheets. There are soooo many wonderful images on these sheets to choose from. I think they are all so beautiful.

I used a Prima flower, lace trim, strand of pearls, gold wired ribbon trim, & one of my handmade beaded stick pin.

I decorated the top of the Chunky ATC with Wild Orchid Crafts mulberry paper roses, shimmery red ribbon (I had in my stash), and accented the large white rose with crystal stickles.

Here are pics of each side:

I added clear rhinestones, distressed the edges of the image and also stained the wood with Tim Holtz's Red Barn distressing ink.

I used a Wild Orchid Crafts paper poinsettia flower and background paper is from Recollection's Bright and Jolly paper pad. It's been my favorite paper pad all season long.

Please stop by and visit Swing Shift Designs for these lovely images and many more.

Hello Friends!!!

I am enjoying this quiet Christmas Eve at home.  No hustling and bustling along with the rest of the crowd that are shopping.  Instead I decided to relax at home and do a little more crafting.  Later on this evening I will be wrapping the Christmas gifts I have for my kidlings (my nieces & nephews). 

Here is a card I created today for Addicted to Stamps:

I created this card using  Mitzi Sato-Wiuff 's Christmas Fairy digi image.  I LOVE LOVE the way this card turned out.  I used copics to color (B00, B05, B41, BV31, C1, C3, E33, E37, G00, G05,R20, R29, V04, V09, W5, Y17, YR17) and Lumiere Neoprene paints (Pearlescent Magenta, Pearl White, Pearl Blue, Met. Russet, Sunset Gold).  I used various papers I found in my stash (Heidi Grace & DCWV), rhinestones, & Darice's 3D snowflake stickers, and a piece of vintage white lace.

Here are close ups:

I wish all of you A Fairy Merry Christmas!!!! 
Many Blessings to you and yours...

Hello Friends!!!

Can you believe it? Christmas is only 3 days away. Are you ready? I'm still trying to get my cards finished but I must say they won't be getting to my friends in time for Christmas. *SIGH* It will be more of a belated Christmas & Happy Winter instead. I hope they won't mind.

Here are a few greeting cards that I created this week for Addicted to Stamps.

This card I used the Snow Flake digi image by Sherri Baldy. I love her images. They are so much fun to color. I used copic markers to color, American Craft's Dear Lizzy paper, Wild Orchid Crafts mulberry paper roses, one of my handmade beaded stick pins, Merry Christmas ribbon, and a white beaded trim.

This card I used the Christmas 28 digi image by Morgan Fitzsimons. This is the first very detailed image I've colored. I enjoyed selecting various colors to create it. I love bunnies and snail mail so when I found this image I just had to get it. I used copic markers to color, Recollection's Bright & Jolly design paper, snowflake ribbon, Wild Orchid Crafts mulberry paper rose & pearl trim.

This card I used the Lil Sweetie My Kitty digi image by Sherri Baldy. I colored the image with copic markers, Recollection's Bright & Jolly design paper, embellished with lace trim, pearl trim, and Wild Orchid Crafts poinsettia paper flowers.

I hope all of you are enjoying your day.
Thank you for stopping by!

Hello Friends!!!

I have been crafting a lot recently and focusing on my Christmas cards. WOOT!!! It's seems that December just got here way too fast. I can hardly believe it, that soon we'll be welcoming the New Year 2012. I can definitely say I'm looking forward to a new year. It'll be a better year *crossing fingers* LOL!!!

Here are two cards I created this week for Addicted to Stamps DT.

I used the Snow Babie digi image by Sherri Baldy.

I embellished this card using a red floral like design from the Recollection's Bright & Jolly paper pad, a shimmery wired ribbon, pink grosgrain bow, a ribbon flower, and colored the image with copic markers. I will have to look up the colors I used. I also distressed the edges using Tim Holtz distressing red barn ink.

I used the Blossom Hippie Chick Christmas digi image
by Heather Valentin.

I embellished this card using a pretty snowflake design from the Recollection's Bright & Jolly paper pad, Prima flowers, Tsukineko Pearlescent Sky Blue dew drop ink for distressing, Studio G's let it snow stamp, Studio G glitter glue, and colored the image with copic markers. I love all the glitter on this card. :)  It's so pretty.

Hello Friends!!!

I hope all of you had a very wonderful Thanksgiving. I spent Thanksgiving with some of my Family. It was a very relaxing and awesome Thanksgiving day for me. We had lots of yummy food and desserts. My personal favorite this year was the delicious homemade Sweet Potato pie. I wish I had a piece right now. LOL!!

I didn't go out for any Black Friday Shopping but I did go out today and picked up some scrappy goodness. Michael's had a great sale but sadly I missed out on getting the paper pads for $9.99 but managed to still get it for 40% off so not too bad.

I am in love with the new Recollection designer papers. I picked up these two paper pads for $11.99 each. I absolutely adore the
Le Ballet papers a lot as they remind me of the Nutcracker.

I finally jumped on the SMASH book bandwagon and picked up this lovely Pink SMASH book. I got to use a 50% coupon on it. WOO HOO!!! I'm soooo thrilled to have my very first authentic K&CO SMASH book. The designer papers are soooo pretty.

Onto more pics:

K&CO Pink Smash book.

Some smash goodness. :)

I'm still building my Christmas stamp collection
up so I found these at Michaels.

The Studio G stamps I picked up at Walmart for .97¢ each and the cute Rudolph the Reindeer stamps I found at Joann.

Lots of Studio G bling I picked up at Walmart for .97¢ each.

Studio G glitter glues also from Walmart for .97¢ each.

I worked on these decos over the weekend.
I received these decos from No1Sassygrl & Twistedfae.
I'll be passing these along to Jacqueline.

Now it's time to get into the spirit of Christmas. YAY!!!

Just stopping in to say Hello!!! I've been sick the past 3 days. *SIGH* I just returned to work today. I'm feeling much better but still have a cough and my voice sounds horrible. It doesn't help when my job is to take calls all day. LOL!!! I'm drinking lots of water and hot tea so I can get rid of this cold.

On Friday I had the day off so I went to the salon to get my hair done. Here is a pic of my new do. I really love it. What do you think?

I also got a little pampering by getting an hour body massage. It was sooooo relaxing. I can't wait to go again.

Since I've been sick I didn't get around to doing a lot of crafting except I did make a few tags on Saturday when I met up with my friends. I will post those later.

Well until next time...Tootles. :)
